City of Austin Lobbyist Data
On September 22, 2016, the Austin City Council passed Ordinance No. 20160922-005, which amended Chapter 4-8 (Regulation of Lobbyists) of the City Code. City Code Chapter 4-8 requires a person to register as a lobbyist if the person meets the requirements outlined in §4-8-3. In addition, a person who meets the registration requirements must file quarterly activity reports, pay the appropriate registration fee(s), and file a Notice of Termination upon termination of lobbying activities.
